There is so much to love about the new modern aesthetic. Rather than being  antiseptic and cold, this elegant style incorporates luxurious natural fabrics, organic florals, and simple, statement-making jewelry. These exquisite gowns designed by Emily Riggs were inspired by the subtle hues of sunsets found in Normandy. Paired with an amazing cradle bouquet and the softest of flushed cheeks, we hope to see more brides embrace this aesthetic.

Outdoor weddings have the most lovely, whimsical nature to them, and when the color palette is inspired by the sky after a thunderstorm, we know it's going to be a good one.
